I did try updating to the beta driver to fix my issue with JC3 but it didn't have any effect. If you're getting the green rectangle, get Steam to validate the game files. That fixed it for me.

Just Cause 3 - Getting the same problem Raid did. Quit to desktop whilst trying to login.
Fallout 4 - getting a weird radar bug.
Haven't tried any other games yet as 2 out 2 being borked is bad enough....
So according to the gaming evolved thing I'm running AMD Catalyst Beta driver (15.11.1)
Is this right?


Is that where the compass glitches? If you wear power armour it doesn't affect it. As I can't recall ever seeing it. Yea not a good fix I know.

Firstly never install the gaming evolved app, it's horrendous. Secondly I went back to the earlier 15.10 catalyst driver and honestly found better performance in games than the newer sets even the station driver set I had installed was better than crimson or anything new.

They guy at work (who sold me the cards cheap - £100 for an R9 290 - seems reasonable) mentioned he would have stuck at 15.10.

I'll try doing a drive wipe and reinsatll of that one tonight.

However, I have been playing Just Cause 3 with all the graphical goodness switched on and it plays fine.
Now played Black Ops 3 with everything turned on and worked fine.
Just The Fallout 4 bug, which isn't game breaking and I think there's a mod that moves the compass to the top of the screen which I heard fixes it too.

AMD looking into underclocking issue caused by Crimson Edition driver

AMD's big Crimson Edition driver launched a few weeks ago with many major changes and feature additions. As is often the case with significant releases such as this, there have been problems. First there was the fan speed issue, and now reports have surfaced about an underclocking issue caused by the driver.

Asked about the issue on Twitter, AMD yesterday stated it's aware of it and investigating. The fan issue was resolved very quickly with a hotfix driver, so the same is likely here. In the meantime, if you find yourself experiencing it and/or stutter in games, AMD says you can get around it by reverting to Catalyst 15.11.1 Beta or 15.7.1 WHQL drivers.

What with Nvidia laying their cards on the table, I was wondering if the Red crowd had any clues as to when the next big thing from ATI was coming?

I'd be intrigued to compare offerings, as my new monitor has all that freesync gubbins in it. If they offer something on par with the GTX 1080, then I might as well get a card that compliments my display. :-k

Or perhaps adaptive-sync isn't all it's cracked up to be? I don't really know. Not paying over the odds for an average monitor with some fancy chip soldered in.

AMD have shown off their first Polaris powered card, the RX480. They claim it will offer performance equivalent to the 970/980 for just $199 which if true makes it a pretty good budget card. A lot will depend on the benchmarks and how Nvidia price their 1060, which will apparently offer similar performance.

Counter-Strike™: Global Offensive and World of Warcraft™ may experience flickering or performance issues the first time the game is launched on a system boot with AMD FreeSync™ technology enabled. Workarounds include exiting and restarting the application or task switching (alt+tab) in and out of the game to fix the issue.

Radeon ReLive will not allow recording settings to change with Instant Replay enabled. A workaround is to disable Instant Replay and change settings then enable Instant Replay.

Radeon ReLive Overlay/Toolbar will not launch or Record when running League of Legends™ in Administrator Mode and Windowed Borderless Fullscreen. A work around would be to not use administrator launch privileges or to use Fullscreen mode.

Mouse cursor may stutter in recorded video when there is limited on screen activity outside of minor mouse movement.

Vulkan™ applications may experience a game hang when using Radeon ReLive to record.

Radeon ReLive will not notify an end user of low disk space during recording.



I installed them last night and tried out the ReLive streaming to Twitch and recording footage and I had next to no performance lost in wow doing stuff I usually do. But I haven't been able to record any desktop sound or my mic through it. So it still needs working
